The Heptones and Their Friends 'Meet The Now Generation' LP
ORANGE VINYL - LIMITED TO 750
Primarily released to showcase the sublime talents of one of Jamaica’s most celebrated vocal trios, The Heptones, the aptly titled Heptones & Their Friends album features a selection of superior reggae sides by the group alongside hugely popular works from the three of reggae’s biggest stars of the period: Judy Mowatt, Nicky Thomas and Peter Tosh of The Wailers.
Backed by top session crew, the Now Generation, the Joe Gibbsproduced selection is of a predictably high standard throughout, with highlights including “Be The One”, a pitch-perfect slice of classic roots; a gloriously cheesy pop cover of the Drfters’ “Save The Last Dance”; the strident “Freedom To The People” and one of the biggest Jamaican hits of the early 1970s, “Hypocrite”.
